So the sunshine is beginning to fade, we’re starting to pull out our jackets and make a notable effort to remember our umbrellas in the morning.  Summer is now clinging on by a few degrees of warmth and the skies are beginning to take on that poor-excuse-for-a-grey-shade shade.

But never fear! The weather may look a bit glum but that doesn’t mean your legs have to as well. Proving it’s not all gloom and doom, bold primary coloured tights are here to save the day!

They graced the Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalks and now they’re omnipresent on the high street, colour pop hosiery is the fastest way to brighten your day and wardrobe.

Harper’s Bazaars shows us one way to work them with a striking coloured blocked look, from head to toe.  Playing with different shapes, textures and tones, create a statement by making your outfit all about that one bright colour. Or for fashionista bonus points, confidently mix and match similar shades. From tangy oranges to rich plum purples, pull the colour through your outfit, in skirts, jackets, scarves, bags and of course, hosiery. And speaking of hosiery….

Now we don’t want to toot our own horn but here at Mytights we have a very large and very desirable range of coloured opaques. To achieve the perfect colour block look, go for our Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights. With a high denier, they’ll deliver the perfect amount of coverage and the colour will remain as rich and as intense as ever. Available in an astounding 29 shades and ranging in vibrancy, there’s no end to the possibility of looks.  Pictured in Harper’s Bazaar are the Flo Purple, Flo Orange and Flo Red shades, proving that the prefix ‘Flo’ is not something to be scared of.  However, if you’re after a shade with an Autumnal nod, go for the Leaf or Rust.

Jonathan Aston have their finger in the colour pop pie too, with their 40D Opaque Tights. Slightly less opaque than others, these tights come in 21 marvellous shades, perfect for

those wanting to inject an instant colour pop as opposed to the head to toe look. Use the Bottle shade to pay tribute to the Military trend in green tights or use the Royal Blue to show off your A/W florals.

And just in case of a freak day of sunshine, and we really do mean just in case, wear the colour pop trend in Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights and even represent the colour wheel in the bright fishnet tights from Pamela Mann.

Whatever the weather, make sure your pins still paint a brightly coloured picture.
